Hey there!

I'm not sure this is really the right section, but I wasn't sure where else it would go!

I'm a 19yo brit heading off to do some travelling in the states this May and whilst I've saved enough cash, it would be nice to be able to supplement myself out there. I'm planning on taking in a lot of beaches and was wondering about making hemp jewellery with sea glass and shells to sell there - I realise I wouldn't make a lot, but I was wondering if anyone could advise. Am I being really naive, is it legal, would I be moved on straight away...? I figured that it's a really easy, cheap craft, I can get the materials anywhere and people probably won't begrudge paying a dollar or two for a souvenier.

I'd really appreciate any insight at all, even if it's 'don't be silly!'

It's a crapshoot depending on the area and their police. Honestly, I wouldn't bother because you could be cited for selling without a license.
